We love their turkey meatballs and the pizza at happy hour prices are the best. But all the food here is terrific. We have not had a bad meal yet.
Chelsea is our go-to local restaurant when guests are in town as well.

Luckily our party of 5 had reservations as there was a 2hr wait otherwise.
We were seated immediately and our waiter came immediately to take our drink and appetizers order. A short while later he took our main orders. About 20-25 minutes later he came and announced 3 of the orders were unavailable because the kitchen was transitioning from brunch. This was a Sunday and the menu states brunch ends at 3pm. It’s now 3:30p The waiter was apologetic and stated the kitchen was severely backed up. The 2nd choice was also unavailable. We were there for hubby’s birthday and he wound up settling for a sandwich! After about another 15-20 minutes, a young lady appeared, and introduced herself as a manager who just arrived to work. She stated she had been updated on what was going on in the kitchen and she stated she’d “take care” of us. She did not charge for any of our meals. We were only charged for drinks and appetizers.
I’ve been here before and was impressed, hence why I chose it for this occasion. Both the waiter and the manager were gracious and professional. I will return and recommend to others!

My husband and I went on a rainy Monday night and sat inside. It was a wonderful experience. Felt cozy. Excellent happy hour specials. Good pizza, inventive beverages. Will definitely go back when it's warmer so that we can sit on the back patio!

I appreciated that they held our reservation because we were running late, but once there the service was lacking. It took forever for our waitress to come take our order. Once she did, my sister and I went ahead and ordered our drinks, some appetizers, and our entrees just in case it took another long period to see her again. Our drinks came out pretty quickly, but a very long time passed before our food came out and when it did, it was our entrees. We never received the appetizers we ordered. When I explained this to the woman who brought out our food, she offered to bring us the appetizers, but at that point, there was no reason to, so we had her remove them from our bill. My sister didn’t receive any of the modifications she requested to her entree, so they gave her a complimentary drink to make up for it. All in all, the food and drinks were good, but the time to receive our food, plus the missing items made it hard to enjoy the experience

We wanted to try Chelsea's so we decided on brunch. Unfortunately the items we ordered were overcooked. The Crab and Lobster Benedict was mushie with the seafood being unrecognizable. The eggs were poached to hard boiled. The short ribs were dry and crusty from not holding the product properly on the Hangover. Service and ambiance were great. Drinks were delicious and unique. Would love to try again for dinner. Brunch may not be their thing.

Birthday brunch with a friend was the occasion and the reason it was not 5 stars is because of a server and her inability to keep up with our table. We had a 1:30 reservation and arrived at 1:34 and were seated immediately which was great! The server was already there came to the table quickly and took our drink order. When back with our drinks we then ordered our meals. My friend had the biscuits and gravy and I had the lump crab cakes and lobster eggs Benedict! Both were very enjoyable and the ambiance was stellar! However we did not receive the meal until 2:35 which was and hour after we ordered it. We believe she forgot about our table order and put it in late but she came to the table and apologized 20 minutes before the food actually arrived. Our food came out direct from the kitchen and she came afterwards and asked if we needed anything and we ordered another drink. We asked for the manager and explained the wait and he did not hesitate to take care of the situation. The server never came back to check on us outside of bringing our additional drinks and they were wrong as well. We still left a tip but we’re very disappointed with the service! I hope others continue to go and enjoy their food and this does not continue and I hope the server handles it better next time a smile and better attentiveness to our table after the incident would have been well received.

Great for outdoor dining! We asked to be separate from others because of covid and they very much accommodated us (it was a Wednesday night so might be crowded on weekends). Great service and good food!

Food was good, ambience was not great. Picked this spot for brunch and made a reservation. We were seated at a very cramped high top right in front of a door staff was going in and out of the entire time. I had seen that Chelsea Corner had a great ambience so I was somewhat disappointed with my experience.

Complimentary valet service seemed wholly unnecessary. The station was understaffed, so we had to wait nearly 15 minutes after departing for our car, which was in full view across the 2-lane street. During that wait, I should have liked to have seen other owners’ transmissions treated with better care and more care for COVID protocols. I can only assume the poor guy working the station solo was simply overwhelmed.

Aside from that bit, the service was great. All staff were friendly and courteous. Our drinks were kept full and all food arrived in a timely manner. The outdoor dining space was well-appointed and the entire restaurant was clean. COVID restrictions were well-followed from what I observed during dining. The food was good, and the cocktails were great! I would definitely visit again.
